Why you need Link Detox
A loss in rankings is likely to result in a loss in traffic, and could thus harm your business significantly.
If your site is not ranking properly, chances are you have received a Manual Action or an algorithmic Google Penalty. In such case, Google believes your backlink profile may include unnatural links and will thus down-rank your site.
With Link Detox, you can find the bad links that harm your site, create a disavow file automatically, and earn your rankings back.
How Link Detox helps your Link Risk Management
Recovering your site from a Google Penalty is only step one.
Due to the Real Time Google Penguin you can recover fast, but also drop faster.
We recommend doing ongoing Link Risk Management where you monitor your backlink profile with Link Detox on a regular basis and disavow shady links proactively. We recommend at least a weekly review and cleanup cycle

Link Detox Features & Benefits
Link Detox was the first link audit product launched in 2012. Since then, we've helped thousands of companies recover from their penalties. Link Detox was free for the first eight months, so that also gave us a head start of many billion data points that no other product ever got to or will be able to incorporate into their algorithm.
Simply said, we know the most about Google penalties. Combine that with the 25 link data sources we have and you will immediately understand that any other product claiming “Link Detox”-like functionality can just not deliver the same quality.
Link Detox gives you a complete backlink profile to review you can get on the market. It’s imperative that you analyze your complete backlink profile of course. Imagine you’d just look one part of your car in the annual service and miss critical issues that could cost you your life. It’s the same with backlink audits.
Thanks to the 25 link data sources and the option to connect Google Search Console, Google Analytics, connect your custom link data APIs and even upload any number of links we got you covered. Only you plan limits for the number of links you can audit for a domain.
Link Detox Genesis® is an organic data-driven algorithm that assigns a DTOXRISK to every link depending on an aggregated calculation of multiple patterns and risk signals.
It will help you assess all your backlinks, recover from Google manual penalties, protect your website from future penalties, and build new strong links.
Link Detox supported keyword intelligence in its rules for years. It’s required to understand if a link anchor text is of commercial nature of a brand mention. Keyword classification helps understand the risk assessed based on frequency, words and many more factors in Link Detox.
Many other link audit products to not even distinguish between the keyword classifications, white LinkResearchTools supported this major requirement since 2010, Link Detox since 2012.
Combining 25 link data sources and your manual files will create a mess in other tools. LinkResearchTools combines, cleans and recrawls all links before it presents results to you.
What’s the point of using a link analysis software if you look at old data? This problem of inconsistent data in other products was, in fact, the root idea of why we invented LinkResearchTools in 2006.
Link Detox supported the Google Disavow file already 7 hours after the official announcement of that feature by Matt Cutts at Pubcon Las Vegas 2012. Since then we’ve gone to great lengths to make the disavow file handling perfect for our users.
Let’s face it – clients change, SEOs change. You are the one who takes over a domain with an existing disavow file. The first thing you want to do is perform a disavow file audit. There you might find many useful links that you could undisavow and recover traffic that you lost due to human error in the past or because the web changes daily. Read more.
Link Detox also keeps a history of all changes for as long as you use the software. This helps you keep track of changes you or your team made over time.
Disavow File History works like a version control for links and disavow files. Think of this as a revision history of your disavow file. You can even retrieve the past disavow file with this feature. Read more.
The more data and links we see, the more precise your reports will be. In addition to our 25 link data sources, you can connect Google Search Console with LinkResearchTools. We even support multiple GSC properties for the same website a secret tactic to get more links out of Google Search Console.
Some black hat SEOs use Link Detox for finding patterns in their link networks and PBNs. Of course, Link Detox is the leader in finding footprints and unnatural links, so this off-label-use make perfect sense. Don’t try this at home.
Based on our research NoFollow links can also trigger spam penalties in Google. About half of the market confirms this. The other half prefers to ignore potential risks coming from NoFollow.
We support analysis for both ways. You can even start with auditing only Follow links first, and then finalize your audit by re-running it for all including NoFollow links. Better be safe than sorry. Read more.
Using CDTOX – the big brother of Link Detox – you can prospect for strong and healthy links of your competitors. Of course, all the keyword classifications and data training you did to Link Detox will be used there, too.
